Is there a way to default the assignee on certain statuses?

Hi

Is there a way to default the assignee on certain status transitions? Example for when it goes to Resolved to default to a QA person and when it moves to Closed to have the assignee defaulted to Unassigned.

Thanks

Sue

Hi Sue,

This can be done via configuring the post function of the workflow transition,

Refer to the link below for the detail

Hope this helps, cheers :)

Thanks this is exactly what I needed.

I glad it helps :) and you are welcomed :)

The plugin of JIRA Misc Workflow Extension should be able to do that in workflow post-function.
